It has that effect on me too. It seems like some people feel sedated on Effexor, and others, like me, get insomnia.

I also used trazodone for a while, but then switched to serzone, to complement the effexor. For me, I take a fair amount of serzone for its antidepressant effect as well as for sleep. If I didn't need the extra AD effect, I probably would have stuck with trazodone. I only needed a very small (non-therapeutic) amount to be able to sleep.

I have also found that cutting out caffeine helps a lot. Once in a while, I still have restlessness and inability to sleep, so my pdoc gave me sonata, which definitely works, but I find that using it for more than one night at a time causes more depression, so I use it rarely.
